Nouns & VerbsNouns & Verbs by Campbell McGrath

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Campbell McGrath's poetry is full of images of the American landscape - from Florida coastline to august Western mountains as well as long stretches of highway, gas stations, convenience stores, diners at midnight and even the most minute, mundane detritus of everyday (e.g., a crushed beer can, a dead fly). But his poetry also considers what it all means, not just how it looks, from our obsession with money and capitalism to the place of poetry in it all. A stirring, vibrant collection surveying his career. Highly recommended.
